Book Review: Singularity by Steven James
If you could slow your aging process down, would you? Are we being replaced by computers? Can a robot have human tendencies?
“Is death really negotiable?” This thought plagues Jevin Banks in Singularity.
These questions go through your mind as you read this novel. Steven James is a master storyteller and this book is no exception. In the sequel to Placebo, James once again explores science through the eyes of an illusionist—Jevin Banks.
Singularity opens with jaw-dropping, hold-your-breath kind of action. But what else would you expect from Steven James?
When Jevin’s friend is murdered, Jevin is determined to get to the bottom of it. He quickly discovers his friend was somehow linked to RixoTray Pharmaceuticals—the company behind Jevin’s last deadly encounter. As well, his adversary Akinsanya is involved. But how?
Jevin and his friends are thrust into the mystery of human consciousness, bionics, conspiracy theories, and the quest for long-lasting life. This novel is well written with solid characters, witty dialogue, and spellbinding action that will hold you in its clutches. James has a way of combining fact and fiction to the point where you wonder how believable these topics are.
Singularity held my attention even in the science descriptions. They may have been a bit long but necessary to set up the storyline. James has a way of weaving intriguing threads throughout his novels that keep you guessing to the very end. I know you won’t be disappointed!
However, I wouldn’t read this book just before you go to bed. It’s not for the faint of heart!
I can’t wait for the next one in The Jevin Banks Experience series as well as the conclusion of The Bowers files, Checkmate. Check out Steven James’ books here.
P.S. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. Stay tuned for my next review coming soon!
